HOTEL OUTSOURCE MANAGEMENT
INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

US Dollars in thousands

NOTE 1:-  NATURE OF OPERATIONS

a.  
Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. ("HOMI") was incorporated in Delaware on November 9, 2000. HOMI and its subsidiaries are engaged in the distribution, marketing and operation of computerized minibars in hotels located in the United States, Europe, Israel and Canada.
 
Hereinafter, HOMI and its subsidiaries will be referred to as the "Company".

The Company has been doing business since 1997 through various subsidiaries. The current corporate structure, in which it is holding company for various wholly owned subsidiaries around the world, has been in place since 2001. The Company common stock was listed on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board, or "OTC Bulletin Board" from February 2004 until February 2011.  It now trades on the OTCQB under the symbol "HOUM.PK."
 
b.  
During 2006, the Company commenced its own research and development program aimed at the development of a new range of products.
 
Currently the HOMI® 330, a "sealed-access" type wireless Computerized Minibar system and the newer HOMI® 226, an "Open-Access" type wireless Computerized Minibar system, are both being produced and installed.

c.  
Commencing 2009, HOMI has begun to implement a new business model. Under the new business model, the Company sells or receives loans against HOMI minibars, installed or to be installed in various hotels. Under this model, HOMI shall continue to manage and operate these minibars in return for a management fee and profit sharing arrangements.

d.  
On March 31, 2013, the Company had $ 181 in cash, including short term deposits.
 
 
The Company continues to incur losses ($ 412 in the three months ended March 31, 2013) and has a negative cash flow from operations amounting to approximately $ 246 for this period.
 
In order to implement the Company's basic business plan for completion of the installation of additional minibars, the Company will need additional funds.

The financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a "going concern". The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net working capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as "going concern" .The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
The Company's preferred method is the new business model, described in item c. above.
The continuation of the company as a going concern is dependent upon implementation of management's plans as well as raising additional funds from shareholders or other.
 
On April 26, 2013 HOMI entered into two loan agreements with a related party, (15%) and other parties (85%), under the new business model- see c above. The loans were for $ 165 and $ 133. See also Note 6b.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 2:-  SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

a.  
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal and recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ended December 31, 2013. The accompanying interim consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2012 included in the Company's Form 10-K filed April 15, 2013.
 
 
b.
Use of estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. The reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period may be affected by the estimates and assumptions management is required to make.  Estimates that are critical to the accompanying consolidated financial statements relate principally to depreciation and recoverability of long lived assets.  The markets for the Company’s products are characterized by intense price competition, rapid technological development, evolving standards and short product life cycles; all of which could impact the future realization of its assets. Estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically and the effects of revisions are reflected in the period that they are determined to be necessary.  It is at least reasonably possible that management’s estimates could change in the near term with respect to these matters.
 
 
c.
Financial statements in U.S. dollars
 
The majority of the Company's sales are in U.S. dollars or in dollar linked currencies. In addition, the majority of the Company's financing is received in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, the Company has determined the U.S. dollar as the currency of its primary economic environment and thus, its functional and reporting currency. Non-dollar transactions and balances have been remeasured into US dollars. All transaction gains and losses from the re-measurement of monetary balance sheet items denominated in non-dollar currencies are reflected in the statements of operations as financial income or expenses, as appropriate.

The financial statements of foreign subsidiaries, whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar, have been translated into U.S. dollars. All balance sheet accounts have been translated using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Statements of operations amounts have been translated using the average exchange rate for the period. The translation differences are attributed to the capital reserve from translation differences.

NOTE 2:-  SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION (cont.)

 
d.
Concentrations of Credit Risk and Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The financial instruments of the Company consist mainly of cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits, trade receivables, other accounts receivable, short-term bank credit, trade payables, other accounts payable and notes payable to shareholders and others.

In view of their short term nature, the fair value of the financial instruments included in working capital of the Company is usually identical, or close, to their carrying values. The fair values of long-term notes payable also approximates their carrying values, since such notes bear interest at rates that management believes is approximately the same as prevailing market rates.

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, and trade receivables. The majority of the Company's cash and cash equivalents are invested in interest bearing U.S. dollar and U.S. dollar-linked instruments or in NIS and Euro interest bearing deposits with major Israeli, U.S. and European banks. Such deposits in the United States may be in excess of insured limits and are not insured in other jurisdictions. Management believes that the financial institutions that hold the Company's investments are financially sound, and accordingly, minimal credit risk exists with respect to these investments.

Our financial statements are stated and prepared in US Dollars and are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

As used in this quarterly report, the term "HOMI" means Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. The terms, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our” means Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc and its subsidiaries, unless otherwise indicated.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

In connection with the issuance of Securities and Exchange Commission FR-60, the following disclosure is provided to supplement the Company’s accounting policies in regard to significant areas of judgment. Management of the Company is required to make certain estimates and assumptions during the preparation of consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These estimates and assumptions impact the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements. These estimates also impact the reported amount of net earnings during any period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Because of the size of the financial statement elements to which they relate, some of our accounting policies and estimates have a more significant impact on our financial statements than others.

Revenue Recognition, Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

Revenues from product sales derived from outsource activity under the exclusive long-term revenue sharing agreements with hotels, net of the hotel’s portion, and revenues from disposal of minibars are recognized in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 "Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements" ("SAB No. 101") and SAB No. 104 when delivery has occurred, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the vendor’s fee is fixed or determinable and collectibles is probable. Revenues from sales of minibars are recognized in compliance with the conditions designated in SAB No. 104, as mentioned above. Sales of minibars that are classified as refinancing arrangements are shown as long-term loans to be repaid in accordance with terms of the agreement as required in FAS 13 "Accounting for Leases".
 
Our payment terms are normally net 15 to 30 days from invoicing. We evaluate our allowance for doubtful accounts on a regular basis through periodic reviews of the collectability of the receivables in light of historical experience, adverse situations that may affect our customers’ ability to repay, and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers and generally do not require collateral because (1) we believe we have certain collection measures in-place to limit the potential for significant losses, and (2) because of the nature of customers comprising our customer base. Accounts receivable are determined to be past due based on how recently payments have been received and bad debts are charged in the form of an allowance account in the period the receivables are deemed uncollectible. Receivables are written off when we abandon our collection efforts. To date, we have not experienced any material losses. An allowance for doubtful accounts is provided with respect to those amounts that we have determined to be doubtful of collection. No allowance was deemed necessary as of March 31, 2013 or March 31, 2012.

Long-Lived Assets

We assess the recoverability of the carrying value of long-lived assets periodically. If circumstances suggest that long-lived assets may be impaired, and a review indicates that the carrying value will not be recoverable, as determined based on the projected undiscounted future cash flow, the carrying value is reduced to its estimated fair value. The determination of cash flow is based upon assumptions and forecasts that may not occur. As of December 31, 2012 the Company’s balance sheet includes $3,879,000 of fixed assets, net. As of March 31, 2013, our balance sheet included $ 3,719,000 of fixed assets, net. The Company has completed its impairment test for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and has concluded that no impairment write-off is necessary.

Financial Statements in US dollars:

The majority of HOMI's sales are in U.S. dollars or in dollar linked currencies. In addition, the majority of our financing is received in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, we have determined the U.S. dollar as the currency of its primary economic environment and thus, its functional and reporting currency. Non-dollar transactions and balances have been remeasured into U.S. dollars in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 52 "Foreign Currency Translation" ("SFAS No. 52"). All transaction gains and losses from the remeasurement of monetary balance sheet items denominated in non-dollar currencies are reflected in the statements of operations as financial income or expenses, as appropriate.

The financial statements of foreign subsidiaries, whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar, have been translated into US dollars. All balance sheet accounts have been translated using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Statements of operations amounts have been translated using specific exchange rates or the average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are not included in determining net income (loss) but are reported in a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders’ equity.

Investments in Affiliates:

The investment in companies over which the Company can exercise significant influence is presented using the equity method of accounting. The Company generally discontinues applying the equity method when its investment (including advances and loans) is reduced to zero and it has not guaranteed obligations of the affiliate or otherwise committed to provide further financial support to the affiliate. Where the Company’s share of an affiliate’s losses is greater than the investment in such an affiliate and in which the Company has guaranteed obligations of the affiliate, the excess amount is presented as a liability.

OVERVIEW

Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. (“HOMI”) is a multi-national service provider in the hospitality industry, supplying a range of services in relation to computerized minibars that are primarily intended for in-room refreshments. In addition, we manufacture and install our own proprietary computerized minibars, the HOMI® 330 and HOMI® 226.

HOMI is a holding company for several subsidiaries which market and operate computerized minibars in hotels located in the United States, Canada, Europe and Israel. HOMI was incorporated in Delaware on November 9, 2000 under the name Benjamin Acquisitions, Inc.
 
Our core activities focus on operating, servicing and marketing computerized minibars located in upscale hotels throughout the world.

We believe that by using the appropriate equipment, including technologically advanced computerized minibars, we are able to materially improve the performance of the minibar departments, thereby improving the hotel’s bottom line.

For some years now, the hotel industry has been focusing on outsourcing many of the functions related to its key activities, in order to increase efficiency and lower fixed costs. We offer our customers a number of solutions that are designed to meet this need, in relation to the minibar departments, ranging from consultation and supervision services, all the way to full outsource installation and operation arrangements.

Whether we are consulting to the hotel, or managing the entire minibar department, we focus on hands-on, expert and dedicated management, on-site supervision, and disciplined implementation of specialized procedures which we have developed, in order to achieve our goals and improve the department’s performance.  Using these methods, we already manage many thousands of minibars for our customers, who are spread over five continents around the world. We have been doing business since 1997 through various subsidiaries. The current corporate structure, in which we are a holding Company for various subsidiaries around the world, has been in place since 2001. Our common stock was listed on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board, or "OTC Bulletin Board" from February 2004 to February 2011 under the symbol "HOUM.OB."  It is currently listed on the OTCQB under the symbol HOUM.PK.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2013 COMPARED TO MARCH 31, 2012.

REVENUES

For the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, HOMI had revenues of $982,000 and $858,000, respectively, an increase of $124,000 or 14.5 %. These revenues arise primarily from the sale of refreshments in the minibars, as well as the direct sale of HOMI minibars. The increase in revenues is mainly due to an increase of the quantity of minibars sold directly to our distributors (direct sales).
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2013, our three largest customers accounted for approximately 25.01 % of our total revenues. During the same period of 2012, our three largest customers collectively accounted for 22.55 % of our total revenues.
 
GROSS PROFIT

Gross profit, before consideration of depreciation expense, increased from $ 328,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $ 336,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2013.  Gross profit margin, before consideration of depreciation expense, decreased from 38.2 % to 34.2 %.

Gross profit, after consideration of depreciation expense, decreased from $ 183,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $ 180,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2013.  Gross profit margin decreased from 21.3 % to 18.3 %.

The decrease is mainly due to the fact that the gross profits at our US subsidiary were relatively low for this period.
 
COSTS OF REVENUES
 
Cost of Revenues, before consideration of depreciation expense, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2013 were $ 530,000 and $646,000, respectively, an increase of $ 116,000 or 21.9 %. The increase is mainly due to the increase of the cost of revenues in our US subsidiary for the period.
 
Depreciation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2013 approximated $ 145,000 and $156,000, respectively, an increase of $11,000. As a percentage of revenues, depreciation expense decreased from 16.9 % to 15.9 %.
 
OPERATING EXPENSES
 
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
 
During 2006, HOMI commenced its own research and development program aimed at the development of a new range of products. The  HOMI® 336, a novel, computerized minibar system designed to increase the accuracy of automatic billing, was the first of the new range of products, the research and development of which, was completed in 2007. The HOMI ® 336 was discontinued and replaced by the HOMI® 330 in 2009. The research and development of an additional product, the HOMI® 226 Minibar, was completed in 2012.  Production of HOMI® 226 began in 2012. Total research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $34,000, and $ 15,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE
 
General and Administrative expenses increased from $  309,000  for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $ 323,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, or by  4.5 %. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased from 36.0 % to 32.9 %.
 
Selling and Marketing expenses increased from $ 62,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $ 68,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, or by 9.7 %.
 
FINANCIAL INCOME (EXPENSES)
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2012 we had financial expenses (net) of $ 84,000 and for the three months ending March 31, 2013, we had financial expenses (net) of $ 107,000.
 
OTHER INCOME (EXPENSES)
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2013 we had other expenses, net, of $11,000 and $74,000, respectively. The expenses during the period are mainly due the dismantling of minibars from 2 hotels in the USA, since the Outsource Operation agreement in these hotels has expired.
 
NET INCOME (LOSS)
 
As a result of the above, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2013 we had a net loss of $317,000 and $ 412,000, respectively.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
Since our inception, we have been dependent on investment capital as our primary source of liquidity. We had an accumulated deficit at March 31, 2013 of $ 12,762,000. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we had net loss of $ 412,000.

Our financing activities resulted in cash of approximately $ 125,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2013.  During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we used cash in the amount of $246,000.

As of March 31, 2013, we had long term liabilities of approximately $ 2,277,000 which are comprised, mainly, of loans.

As of March 31, 2013, the Company had $181,000 in cash, including short term deposits
 
In order to implement the Company's basic business plan for the installation of additional minibars, the Company will need additional funds from shareholders or others.  The Company's preferred method is its new business model, pursuant to which we obtain a loan from a third party in order to finance the purchase and installation of minibars at a specific hotel with which we have an outsourcing agreement. The minibars, once installed and operational, remain in place at the hotel, and we operate and maintain these minibars in accordance with our outsourcing agreement. A sum equal to a portion of our revenues from the outsourcing agreement is paid to the third party each month, towards repayment of the loan, usually for the duration of the outsourcing agreement, and a minimum of 8-9 years.
 
 
17

 
 
The continuation of the company as a going concern is dependent upon implementation of management's plans as well as raising additional funds from shareholders or others. These measures will provide sufficient cash for the ongoing operations of the Company for the next twelve months.
